Beautiful house overlooking the ocean surrounded by the amazing Dominican landscape. It truly is more amazing than the pictures! Noelia is great to work with and quick to respond. Definitely need an SUV to get up the hill. The home is located close enough to Las Terrenas to enjoy the wonderful restaurants and many nearby beaches - while providing a refuge from the chaos.

Absolutely fantastic location. You feel in paradise! We are a family with 4 grown up kids and enjoyed our holidays the most. Spectacular view, very clean and landlords are very responsive. I can only warmly recommend (we are used to Swiss standard and quality) and wish to go back one day. We felt like staying at a friends house. Quality / Price top!

I had an amazing week in Hilltop Refuge, Las Terrenas with my friends. The villa is gorgeous and as shown on the pictures. The location is on the top of a hill so it is recommended to get a SUV. Noelia, the housekeeper, is nice and very friendly. We had a dinner made by a local cooker, Simon, which was delicious. The quality and the service definitively worth the price. A pool guy came every day as well to clean the swimming pool. Awesome experience overall!
